Seeing a tree stump often makes me sad. I think of a life ended too soon & in a violent way. I think of all that was lost.

trees attract rain laden clouds... in their absence the clouds will drift away...

Great photo!

Trees die slowly and

like a grave stone

The stump reminds me of "The Giving Tree' by Shel Silverstein. It is still giving- providing a seat for those who need one. That's a mighty big shadow it has.
